Skagit Golf & Country Club
Skagit Golf and Country Club has recently been remarked upon as one of the finest hidden gems in Western Washington. With narrow, tree-lined fairways making up most of the front nine, golfers are challenged to shoot straight off the tee. The back nine offers a more open look with additional length. The relatively flat course is inviting to golfers of all proficiency levels, but fast, smooth greens – prevalent throughout the entire course – offer a fun challenge for all.
